2016 Doyle W. Stephens Scholarship Award
Thursday, May 12th- before the lunch break
Every year since 2003, FRIENDS awards the Doyle W. Stephens Scholarship ($1,000) to a graduate or undergraduate student engaged in new or ongoing research that focuses on Great Salt Lake and/or the Lake ecosystem or watershed.
The scholarship was established in memory of Dr. Doyle W. Stephens (1944-2000) who was a research hydrologist for the U.S. Geological Survey. As a contributor to the Great Salt Lake Ecosystem Program that was initiated in 1996, Doyle’s work on Great Salt Lake brine shrimp ecology helped increase understanding about population dynamics of the shrimp in the Lake and factors affecting the structure and density of the population.
This year, the 2016 Doyle W. Stephens Award Ceremony will take place at the Great Salt Lake Issues Forum prior to the lunch break on Thursday, May 12th. Stay tuned for more details about the 2016 scholarship recipient.
